(melbourne vic australia)
I am 44 & starting using progesterone cream (1 ml) 2 menstrual cycles ago. I undertake weight training 4+ days per week and have commenced light walking 3-4 days per week for 30-45 minutes. I am also taking melatonin tablets (1) per evening to assist with sleep. I follow a Paleo lifestyle (gluten, dairy, and sugar free). In the last 2+ months I have experienced weight gain, approximately 6 kg+. I have extremely low testosterone, am oestrogen dominant levels & have no insulin sensitivity. Is the weight gain due to the progesterone and if so how long may it take to stabilise?
